Phyllis digging in?

I'm not 100% sure but I think that Phyllis, the Giant Tunnelling Machine of Doom, actually started digging tonight. As of Friday she was still in the position she's been in for the last couple of weeks, but now there is a constant faint machinery noise which I suspect is the start of excavations. I'll take a look tomorrow morning and see if I'm right.

The next step, once Phyllis is clear of the portal, is that the next tunnelling machine - named Ada for Ada Lovelace - will be bought up to the portal and eventually start digging. As usual there don't seem to be any official announcements, but hopefully the position will be a bit clearer tomorrow.
